3 ways to pray for the Triangle

April 25, 2018

The Strategic Focus Team works with churches in eight population centers and other areas across the state of North Carolina. The highest concentrations of lost people are found in and around the eight population centers, which are the Blue Ridge, Coastal, Fayetteville, Greenville, Metro Charlotte, Triad, Triangle and Unifour regions.

Although disciple-making efforts have made some progress in these areas, prayer is essential for God’s mission to take place. Would you join us in prayer for these eight population centers, lostness in North Carolina and the many people working together to reach the people across our state?

The Triangle region is comprised of approximately 2 million people from diverse backgrounds. Anchored by Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, the Triangle is known for opportunities in research, education and business, as well as its mild climate and comparatively low cost of living,

The Triangle is one of the fastest growing areas in the United States. Business opportunities and major research universities make the region attractive to students, young professionals and families from both inside and outside the United States. Increased urbanization also breeds social challenges such as poverty, trafficking, addictions, homelessness and more. As the Triangle grows, so does the percentage of lostness in the region. Here are three ways you can pray.

Pray for:

  1. Churches in Cary that are working together in ministry and outreach to Hispanics and other internationals concentrated in a large trailer park and surrounding neighborhoods. Pray that these ministry efforts lead to more and more gospel conversations.
  2. Those living in an impoverished area of Durham and the churches that are working together to demonstrate and proclaim the gospel. Pray for wisdom in ministering effectively without feeding dependency.
  3. Encouragement and perseverance for teams from multiple churches that are focused on reaching specific, unreached people groups in the Triangle, including peoples from South Asia, West Africa, Turkey, Thailand and others who are from Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist backgrounds. Pray for the Spirit to move mightily in drawing people to Himself.
